Hidden Figures on Valentine’s Day

Hidden Figures on Valentine’s Day

I recently went to the film, Hidden Figures (I recommend it). It is a film set in the 1960s, at a time in USA when segregation between men and women and between white and coloured was still practiced.

Hail, Caesar!

Hail, Caesar!

The irony of going to the Coen Brothers’ movie Hail, Caesar! was that it was preceded by a trailer for a “religious” film coming out by Easter, Risen. The religiously-motivate Risen is about a Roman soldier, at the time of Christ, coming to terms with who Jesus is. I have been sorely disappointed with recent… Continue Reading
